Esther is a 12 year old student from Redmaids' High School. Part of her Bat Mitzvah, a ritual Jewish coming of age ceremony, involves completing a project which incorporates the Jewish idea of tzedakah, or acts of charity. Esther intends to record a video each month of her performing music and reading poems for our residents to enjoy.
She is an incredibly talented young woman and we are sure you will thoroughly enjoy her videos, which we will share with you below.
In January's video, Esther plays Gigue by Veracini on the violin and recites two poems; 'Life' by Charlotte Bronte and 'The Thought Fox' by Ted Hughes.
